Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Both the driver side and passenger curtain airbags deployed without any impact while the brake was engaged at a stoplight. The airbags did not deflate and were cut down by the paramedics so that I could exit the car. Injuries were sustained, bruising, swelling, black eye and burns from the airbag deployment. Independent investigators were unable to determine the cause of deployment. Currently waiting for Jeep to remedy the situation. Waiting for a settlement for my Jeep, medical, and rental bills so I can purchase another vehicle.

My airbag sensor light started coming off and on as I was driving in December of 2008. I took the car in to the dealer and was told the problem was fixed by the dealer. Like clockwork in the winter of 2009 and continuing until today the light is coming off and on constantly (every 3-10 miles). There is no rhyme or reason to it, I can be accelerating, decelerating, at a complete stop etc. Besides being annoying I have read that other customers have had the same problem with their Jeep. I have asked Jeep customer service to replace the part at no cost to me since I am no longer under warranty but they told me they are unable to do that, and I am unable to afford the $300+ part they need to "fix" this problem once again.
